State Forest Trails Award


trailpatchThe Department of Conservation & Natural Resources’ Bureau of Forestry has teamed up with the Keystone Trails Association in recognizing any hiker who completes the entire 798 miles of the State Forest Hiking Trail system. Our recognition program operates on the honor system, assuming those individuals who apply for award status, have truly hiked the 18 State Forest Hiking Trails in their entirety.

Sequence of trails hiked, direction, speed, and length of time are not considered as part of this application nor the program. Hikers completing the trail system will be awarded a certificate, patch and ceremonial walking stick at the Keystone Trails Association’s annual dinner each fall.
